Introduction

The Scott Hall bus stop is different from the other bus stops on the Rutgers campus. Located on the College Ave campus, it is one of the busiest and most crowded and is also a popular place for students to hang out. The bus stop itself is larger to accomodate more students and the area surrounding it is home to the well-known RUHungry Grease Trucks.

The Scott Hall stop is named for its location directly across the street from classroom building Scott Hall. Physically, the area is decorated with red and yellow umbrellas, flags, signs, garbage cans, and other objects. The staples covering the posts of the bus stop show how many flyers have been placed there over the years. Functionally, this bus stop is for students taking the EE, F, A, H, and LX buses. It is also a place where students hang out and get something to eat. The grease trucks have been here since 1979 when the first fat sandwich, the Fat Cat, was served (RU Hungry).

I have a class in Voorhees Hall and club meetings in Murray Hall, so I am here several times a week. Most of the time I'm just waiting for a bus to get back to Douglass. The first time I went here was last year when I was going to the Involvement Fair across the street.
